[ laughter ] that was rough. >> i remember the first time that i saw springsteen was -- i was in high school, and my friend and i, jeff robbins, who's a super fan, like unbelievable. knew everything there is to know about springsteen.
>> jimmy: is he one of those guys that like, he brings a set list to the concert, and he finds it online, like "he's gonna do 'born to run' next." like, shut up! >> something's wrong with bruce, he's out of sync. >> jimmy: he never plays this song! this is not what he's supposed to do. >> all right, i gotta record this. i've got to get online. i've got to get online. >> jimmy: get online. i'm getting out of here. or the guy who has his phone up the whole time? >> yeah. >> jimmy: i want to see this through the phone instead of seeing it right there. i wanna see it through my phone. yeah, you're the only person that can get footage of this. >> well, this was all before technology. >> jimmy: oh, yeah. >> this is way back in the day. and we skipped school, and we drove from kansas city, because the closest bruce was gonna come to kansas city was st. louis. so we drove five hours to st. louis and we didn't have tickets. the show had been sold out for months. and i was like you know, "dude, this better work." and he's like, "trust me, trust me." we had no money. how are we gonna scalp tickets, we don't have any money. and he had read something in magazines and apparently bruce doesn't care for scalpers too much, so right before sold out shows, every now and then he
will release some tickets. so, we couldn't get any scalp tickets, so we stood by the box office, and i was looking at him going, you -- you know, you're killing me. and sure enough, they opened the box office and we leaned in, "can we get tickets?" sure. so we got tickets at face value. and ten rows back, two rows up. i could feel the sweat hit me from the boss. >> jimmy: that is fantastic. that is like being -- >> he put on a four-hour show. he did "born in the usa" about two and a half hours in. and i'm thinking, "this is it, this is the finale. this is it." and when he got done, he's like, "relax everybody, it's only halftime." halftime! >> jimmy: two and a half hours, halftime. >> yeah, halftime. >> jimmy: that's how killer -- the guy's insane. >> that's why he's the best. so i'm glad you're doing it. i'm glad you're doing it. >> jimmy: well, you're a good man. i know, it's gonna be fun tonight. [ cheers and applause ] elvis costello, when you hear this, you're gonna go nuts. >> yeah, elvis. oh, that's -- >> jimmy: i mean, you can't beat that. elvis costello doing bruce? >> i'm totally gonna get my picture taken with him. i don't care, i'm like whatever. >> jimmy: no, whatever. or videotape it on your phone. [ laughter ] [ talking over each other ] totally. now, a lot of people don't know this, i don't know if you do know this, you were in the
marines. >> that's right. >> jimmy: before you got into comedy. >> that's right. i'm still in the marines today. >> jimmy: you still are? >> i'm still in it.

>> i didn't get jets, i got helicopters. i was getting close to getting my wings and i realized once i pinned those wings on, they had me for eight years. and i could do the math, and i was like, "oh, i'm not gonna get to do comedy." so i quit flying and became a ground officer. and when i quit flying, my commanding officer, he didn't go for it. he didn't like it very much. >> jimmy: no, of course not. >> he goes, "what's the problem? what's the problem?" i was like, "i think i want to be a comedian." and he goes, "don't ever -- >> jimmy: really funny, boy? >> yes, exactly. >> jimmy: gets right in your face. make me laugh then! come on laugh! in your face! i'm not laughing yet! >> exactly. there was a lot of that. a lot of that. >> jimmy: but look at you now -- >> but then he looked at me and he goes, "don't ever tell anybody what you just told me."

[ laughter ] >> i am the bad guy. i'm the bad guy. aloysius o'hare. he's about as tall as this. he's about that, yeah. he's about that tall. >> jimmy: yeah, he's like really tiny. >> but i wanted to give him a big voice. he's got an awesome hair cut, as you just saw. >> jimmy: it's pretty neat, yeah. >> yeah, i think that's probably gonna -- you're gonna see a lot of that on wall street. a lot of corporate guys are
gonna -- just like, you know, gordon gecko has the slicked-back. >> jimmy: but that's pretty cool. so what do you end up doing? can we say? spoilers? >> i don't want to give any spoilers, but i'm an industrialist who's lost his way. >> jimmy: yeah. all right, that's pretty good. yeah, that's what most dr. seuss books are about. >> exactly. real heavy. >> jimmy: real heavy. long, long books. >> "and then the mayans said on december 12th --" [ laughter ] >> jimmy: wait a second, peter geisel's lost his mind. i want to show a clip of rob riggle in "the lorax." you guys, check this out. >> ted, ted, big scary blimp coming. >> ah! >> ah ha, ha, ha, ha! ♪ ha, ha, ha! ♪ whoa! you won't get away with this, boy! bang! ♪ go faster, you idiot! yeah! >> step on it, ted! >> whoa! ♪
